6 end tables i’m loving right now

Here are a few of my favorite {living room} things…

6 end tables I'm loving right now

1> Vein cut marble top paired with the wood base is sophisticated yet earthy.

2> I already love a good log table, but the lacquered silver takes the cake. Use one as a drink table, or bunch a few in place of a coffee table.

3>  A modern take on Saarinen’s tulip side table. I adore the metal and wood combo!

4> Love the simple shape.  This one can be traditional or modern, and comes in the gray wash  (as shown) or 2 other finishes.

5> These little hourglass tables from Target are a steal at $59.99!

6> Gold leaf hairpin legs + white marble top = A little slice of heaven

 

Which one is your fave??

love it or hate it: Sherwin Williams new numbering system

So I recently learned that Sherwin Williams entire numbering system is in the process of changing!  Many of you familiar with the system know it was a 4 number system, and now they’re going to a 5 number system.  And the numbers are not similar at all.  For example, Pure White was SW 7005, and now is SW 30008.

Translation:  I’m gonna have to relearn all of my most favorite numbers again!  EEEKKK. Oh well.  I GUESS I’ll adapt.

The silver lining?  Word is there is about a 100 new colors in this new system.

Oh and these are what the new swatch cards look like:

They remind me of trading cards.  I think I kinda like them.

How do you other designers/home renovator/Sherwin Williams paint lovers feel about this?  Love it or hate it??

PS. TGIF! 🙂
